Mississippi Gourd Festival Vendors, 2015

These vendors were at the 2015 Mississippi Gourd Festival in Raleigh, MS.  Cleaned, ready-to-craft gourds are dried/cured gourds that have been cleaned. Many of us call those raw gourds.  Occasionally, a vendor might have a few green, uncured gourds for sale.
